…but instead spent the afternoon in the emergency room.
As I was leaving class yesterday I slipped down some stairs, landed on my butt, and somehow managed to fracture one ankle and sprain the other on the way down. Needless to say, we didn’t spend the afternoon quite how I imagined.
I’m a little disappointed, I’ve been waiting for a ring for over a year now. We are going to go get it today, so not all is lost . I’m just thrilled that he’s going to let me see the ring before it goes in to hiding until he proposes (we are getting a white sapphire, as well as having a euro shank put on it, so I wanted to see it in person to make sure it is what I want before the return period is up).
Now I just have to get through the day without doing any more damage to myself!

I had to take my Fiance to the ER last night, sounds like we both had a good Monday! 🙂
Good thing you are ok and can go get your ring today!

Aw man! Well, at least it was just a temporary setback and as @ChicChick said your left hand is OK, and hopefully your right hand is also OK so you can POST PICTURES when you get it! Feel better!

Oh no! Hope you are feeling better today!! I guess with a ring on the horizon it is a good pain relief!

Ouch!! I hope you feel better and heal quickly. That sounds really painful, and what a way to ruin your special day. Sending get well wishes your way!

Aw, crap! I broke my ankle in August….I sympathize! That hurts. Glad to hear the ring trip is still on!

The good news is that I didn’t end up fracturing the left ankle like the ER doctor thought I did. I went to see an orthopedic surgeon on Tuesday and he couldn’t find a fracture, but I did strain both ankles. I’m out of work for at least two weeks (probably longer, I work in retail at the Disney Store), and I’ll have to go through PT to work on how I balance on my feet (this is my fifth bad fall in the past two years).
We did end up getting the ring on Tuesday after my appointment. I don’t have pictures, but it’s a three stone ring with channel set side stones. The center stone is a beautiful 7mm white sapphire and the side stones are 1 ctw diamonds. It’s a total departure from the moissanite ring I had thought I wanted, but I love it.
I’ll have pictures once my SO actually proposes. We made a deal that he would let me come with him to pick it out, buy it, and pick it up when it was ready if I promised I wouldn’t look at it or touch the bag it’s in until he proposes. I can see it sitting on his desk right now and I’d love to try it on again, but a promise is a promise, so I wait. Luckily I have my birthday coming up in two weeks and a trip to Disneyland planned for the first weekend in May, so I shouldn’t have to wait much longer.
